Top New Game Releases On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This WeekTime: Nov. 14, 2019
Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, the new, single-player melee action game from the makers of Titanfall and Apex Legends, is almost here. The game officially launches on Friday, November 15, but copies of the game have begun to appear in the wild already.
There are reports on Reddit and elsewhere of people getting their hands on the much-anticipated Star Wars game ahead of time. Players who are keen to avoid spoilers are advised to be extra careful on social media, as information about the story could emerge.
Jedi Fallen Order takes place five years after Revenge of the Sith. The story, which is canon, follows a Jedi Padawan named Cal Kestis (played by Gotham's Joker, Cameron Monaghan) who is trying to outrun Empire forces trying to eliminate all Jedis. The main enemy is Darth Vader's trainee, the Second Sister, who is chasing Cal across the solar system.
Unlike other EA-published games, Jedi Fallen Order is not available early for EA Access subscribers. That's a bummer, as playing upcoming EA games early is in part what makes the subscription service so attractive.
Early copies of Jedi Fallen Order emerging in the wild have appeared just as pre-loading for the game has begun. Respawn announced on Twitter that people who pre-ordered a digital copy of the game can start pre-loading now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The file size relatively small compared to other big AAA games, weighing in at around 37 GB (on Xbox One, at least).
As for when you can actually start playing Jedi Fallen Order, the game will reportedly unlock at midnight local time.
